Bessie-isms and Quotable for June 25 & 26, 2016


*Never lie to a child, if you would hope to hear the truth from them: They will take your lies as a perfect excuse for their own.

*A woman will think of a hundred reasons why your comments about how beautiful she is are not true. Tell her anyway, as she will much prefer your lies to your silence, which she will always construe as criticism.


Nobody can be as amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.

Sydney Harris
